About

Preserving History, One Piece At a Time

So many items out there to be rediscovered!
The items I sell in my shop are found around town, & sometimes in the unlikeliest of places, like rubbish piles (a rose platter) & the beach (rusty beach metal.)
Most of the time these items are sitting in attics & garages, & have been forgotten about.
My passion is to bring them back to life by doing what is necessary & finding a place for them to be truly appreciated!
My work space is filled to the brim of once forgotten treasures!
When my time allows it, I clean, repair, photograph & describe them in detail, all so you know what a gem it is & want to bring them in to your home.

I am a mother first and foremost to 2 darling small children, wife to my hard working husband, & full time home manager. We also have chickens ( Dr.Doodle, Sky,Rainbowberry...) our cat, Creek & our dog, Pickle, that need us & 5 acres that needs tending with plans for a full spring garden, so my Etsy shop is my outlet of expression, & it helps me make the extra dollars for all the fun stuff I want for them (currently for a family vacation to the ocean). Hopefully in the process of running my business, I can save reusable materials from landfills & encourage proper spending in the first place.

I am a mother, wife, daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, cousin, niece, teacher, recycler. entrepreneur, gardener, writer, crafter, decorator, scrapbooker, creator, photographer, hemp jewelry maker, clothes enthusiast, list maker...
I love all that I do & Owner/Sole Operator of "The Paisley Whale" on Etsy, is another title I am proud of!
I have my business license for my dream storefront that I have been planning for for a decade!! I have been working towards a storefront in downtown Kingston, but with little to no real estate options, I decided to go towards something continuously productive instead of idling, waiting for an open space that is in budget. So...

I am starting a flea market!!
Downtown, in the prime location of The Kingston Cove Yacht Club.

I, The Paisley Whale, am currently presenting "Kingston's Monthly Flea Market", as I have a dream to be the Flea Market Networks Coordinator, & bring members of our community together, to provide for all!

First and foremost, this is for the community, raising funds for those in need & raising spirits for all involved. I get to take my little ones in search of history, providing an outlet for me & a fair price for those no longer appreciating an items value.
I am full-time with my important soul mates: my family, plus making sure everything is appropriate. Keeping them in everything healthy & out of everything else. I feel deeply rewarded, loved & needed. It can be an exhausting, & overwhelming experience. Some may take days off, I don't have those, so I have decided, one day a month on the first Saturday will be my day to reduce my clutter at home by selling all those things that I am no longer needing; socialize with other human adults; feel accomplished on a different level; & express myself through my own human experience, in a safe and accepting place. Plus those ducats be rolling in.
Check out my shop & you can own a piece of history!
Join me & you can become your own story, make history & be a part of other's lives.
Come find me at Kingston's Monthly Flea Market, at The Cove, KCYC, for a personal experience and no shipping costs!

I have a Facebook page & website that I am working on to build momentum before I actually have my brick and mortar. Continue with The Paisley Whale,
"like" The Paisley Whale on FB
for updates on my progress. There is so much to share with you!

Thank You for looking at my items.
I put great adoration in to the items I sell. I make sure that what I am selling is a quality product, and/or I try to make a detailed description( i'll say if an item is vintage, shabby chic or damaged in any way.)

I Always clean the items I have for sale & wrap w/ great care! My listings are long b/c I include all the info I can so you know what you are buying.

I do not include an invoice. I try to be as eco friendly as possible when packaging for shipping, but I do take great care to ensure it arrives to you safely. I always pack to ship with great care.
I use eco friendly biodegradable bag & tape, reusable recyclable boxes & repurposed packing materials.
Most items are wrapped in tissue paper & tied w/ repurposed twine or ribbon, but I do offer gift packaging upon request.
If bubble wrap or material that can be reused please do.
Please let me know if this covers any questions you might have

My listings are long b/c I include all the info I can so you know what you are buying.

All my items, when in my possession, are not subjected to any smoke, pet odor or synthetic fragrances. Some items that are vintage do retain the previous owner's habits so I do my best to eliminate any odors but some may be stubborn & may linger, (if heavily than I will state it in the listing) otherwise it may just be a light scent.

I use eco friendly biodegradable bag & tape, reusable recyclable boxes &
re-purposed packing materials.

If bubble wrap or material that can be reused please do.

Please let me know if this covers any questions you might have.

As soon as I have received word that payment was cleared, I will then ship the item out within 48 hours, most items ship asap (but of course I can't ship on weekends or holidays, but I will ship the next mailing day) If purchasing on Friday I may have to ship Monday. & some Mondays are holidays.

If for some reason you have changed your mind please contact me, instead of just not sending payment. I will allow 3 days for me to receive payment, of which I will try to be in contact with you. If I don't hear anything back within that time, and no payment was received I will consider the sale terminated, and relist the item. It is up to me if I want to leave you negative feedback before canceling the order. If you have any questions please contact me.

If you want to include insurance, change shipping method or include other add ons,(delivery confirmation is included on all orders) tell me in the "message to seller" during checkout & I will send an invoice through Paypal. Once you have received the invoice please send payment promptly.

Credit Cards-
I accept paypal, which accepts all major credit cards (no account setup needed) & credit cards through Etsy.

Money Orders/Checks-
For a limited time I am accepting money orders & checks, (but I will see if that is going to work out) It takes a considerable longer amount of time for me to receive money orders & checks in the mail, & wait for payment to clear. I will be in contact w/ you to let you know when I received payment & when I shipped. Please for money orders use Postal (USPS) money orders as these do not have a wait period after depositing.
Most items paid for using Money Orders will take several weeks before you receive the item.
Shipping
Shipping-
I do my best to keep your costs as low as possible.
I try to charge accurately for shipping, I must also include costs for materials.
Shipping Method is USPS.
If you need a different type of shipping like overnight or to use UPS or FedEx let me know and I can quote you a price before you pay or send a revised paypal invoice which must be paid before I ship. If you do need a different company, faster delivery or to have the item shipped internationally, I will need to include those costs. Contact me with your preferred shipping method or as you are making the purchase enter your preferred shipping method in the message to seller box. If wanting to purchase a different method than the one that is on the Etsy invoice then please pay the Etsy purchase invoice & I will send a paypal invoice (or issue a refund if applicable) as costs may have changed.

For US domestic-
The shipping price is for USPS Domestic first class unless heavy then shipping method will be Priority flat rate bubble envelope or a flat rate priority box, with tracking number and delivery confirmation. Delivery confirmation is included on all orders.
Any shipping price under $6.00 is using biodegradable poly mailers priced by weight and ships USPS domestic first class for cost effectiveness as this is the cheapest way to ship unbreakables. Over 6$ & it ships USPS priority flat rate usually a box, though small items ship in a padded mailer.
Please read above as well. Let me know if you have any questions :)

INTERNATIONAL-
I will ship internationally, price quoted may be less for some countries or regions, so if you inquire w/ your location I may be able to charge a lower price. I ship USPS international first class. Or if heavy I will ship parcel post or flat rate, whichever is less expensive. International buyer (you) will be liable for all duties, customs and taxes levied by your individual country.
Contact me if any questions, thank you.
Please read above as well. Let me know if you have any questions :)
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and Exchanges
Please contact me if you must return the item you purchased from me & we will discuss your options. You have up to 7 days after receiving the item to return it to me & be eligible for such an option. Certain types of damages won't be eligible for an exchange/refund ect... Like if you cut the item upon opening- so be careful :)

You must pay for shipping back to me and I will provide you with store credit for your next purchase. I will refund or offer store credit on price of item only, minus a restocking fee of $2 & I will not refund any shipping costs.
I will take great care to wrap and ship each item/s in a way that damages shouldn't happen. If you are concerned with damages or losses through the mail, I will include insurance in the invoice at cost to you, please write "insurance" in message to seller box & I will send you an invoice.
No two items are alike so I can't offer exact exchanges. I won't refund insurance, overnight, delivery confirmation or any other extras, add ons or more expensive company choice. If a package is lost and there is delivery confirmation then I am not liable for the delivery company's fault, you must take it up w/ them. For a returned item I will offer a refund or store credit only on the purchase price & not the shipping cost & I also I charge a $3.00 restocking fee for my time b/c I have now not made any money & have had to spend time & gas shipping it to you. I am just a one woman operation & I enjoy doing this to provide extra income for my family, but I can't afford to spend my own money on a wrong address or changed mind.
It is hard to write such policies, so I hope I have included any scenario, but please contact me if you have any questions. We will arrive at a mutual agreement. I would hope with the great care I put in to packaging my items and writing descriptions that you will be completely satisfied with your purchase.
Additional policies and FAQs
Items come from my Smoke Free, Synthetic Fragrance Free & currently Pet Free shop. Happy Shopping! I am super in to eco friendliness so Please, reuse any materials possible, or donate them to someone else. The environment thanks you.
